on what he called his effort at tion The French foreign minister led off the debate of the parley Bidault's speech was primarily a review of the proceedings to date He acknowledged that all major

netted day for a thin ed man wearing horn rim glasses Police said the gunman might be responsible for all three holdups The bandit wearing neat white coveralls of the type painters use held up four women em- ployes Monday in the Atlas ings and Loan association office He struck four hours after 000 from the office had been deposited in a bank Washington Sen ton told Sen McCarthy today he better go to a psychiatrist Symington tossed out that ad- vice as he and McCarthy hooked up in another angry exchange at the hearings It was touched off when Carthy insisted that Symington ought to take the witness stand Symington demanded in turn that McCarthy testify under oath in connection with 1952 charges involving McCarthy which were investigated by a senate As McCarthy referred to ington as Sanctimonious Symington broke in to say edly Senator McCarthy I re- sent that reference to my first name Symington then said McCarthy ought to consult a psychiatrist The row was a renewal of a hassle the two senators had late Monday Claims Influence McCarthy contended then that the transcript of a March 8 tele- phone talk between Symington and Secretary of the Army ens indicated that Symington and Clark Clifford once special sel to former President Truman had influenced Stevens to accuse McCarthy and his aides of ing preferential treatment for Pvt G David Schine drafted con- to McCarthy's tions subcommittee At the outset of this after- session McCarthy told the subcommittee he doubts the ate could force Symington to testify in the inquiry but that he believes the Missouri senator would be wise to do so because of public opinion Symington I have no objection of any kind to saying anything under oath that I say not under oath because I tell the truth Symington then challenged Carthy to answer under oath be- fore a senate committee questions raised by a senate rules in 1952 concerning the Wisconsin senator's financial dealings Nobody in the senate knows more how to avoid testimony than the junior senator from Symington declared McCarthy said he would be glad to take the oath and testify before the ings about all the 1952 charges if that would induce Symington also to testify Symington insisted McCarthy should appear before the rules subcommittee which investigated that the current hearings Symington asked whether Carthy would agree to an ar- rangement for them each to make a speech to the senate He asked McCarthy to state if he McCarthy will come before this committee and testify on the charges that were made against him in 1952 McCarthy called that a very attractive offer and told I'm willing to go on the stand about the old Benton es and let you or other senators question me Symington said he wasn't ing about any Benton charges but about the loan Sen William Benton tangled with McCarthy in 1952 over McCarthy's charges of Com- munist infiltration of the state department Benton was ed for re-election that fall Senate hearings also in 1952 developed that McCarthy had pr stricken Asked to comment on the high court's verdict she I feel there is no justice The decision certainly wasn't fair to Jeffrey or myself We just can't understand why the court ruled as it did Attorneys for Mrs Tschudy said there would be no further action m the case The supreme court said there is no statute which vests in a county court the authority to re- view the acts of public body in the exercise of powers granted it by the ture The decision cited sections of the law and noted they provide for review of rules and orders of certain administrative agencies of the state including those of the welfare department but the forum is restricted to the circuit court in Dane county The court further said it did not appear that the alleged two tive parent standard maintained by the department is in the form of a written rule It is asserted as a policy con- sonant with modern medical and social welfare the court said The court said the record in- there is a diversity of opinion among experts as to the merit of the application of such standard in all cases and Other Factors We are not unmindful of the department's position that it con- other factors in addition to such policy in the instant tion Strict adherence by the de- to such policy obviously would make impossible the tion by a single adult person of any child committed to the care of the department or for which it acts as guardian We are compelled however to hold that a county court in an adoption proceeding lacks to review the department's refusal of consent and that it has Cold
